The Forth Bridges

This picture of the Forth Bridges, taken from Cramond island, shows the Forth Rail Bridge, built in Victorian times and still going strong.

Behind it is one of the towers of the Forth Road bridge – opened in 1964, but now suffering from some deterioration caused by the unprecedented traffic levels, and weather.

Finally, in the distance are two towers from the new Queensferry Crossing.  Built to relieve the pressure on the Road bridge which is now mainly used for public transport.

The Queensferry Crossing was opened in 2017 and is a beautiful looking bridge.
